Year Three

Our Year Three class teacher is Miss Shaw.

Year Three is the first year of Key Stage Two.  Children move upstairs to the Year Three classroom and also take a step up in their work, independence and responsibilities.  This is the year where each child will have the opportunity to earn a much-coveted 'pen licence'.  Children will be able to participate in a wider range of clubs and may begin to represent the school in competitive sporting events.  During the year, some children excitedly prepare to celebrate their First Confession and First Holy Communion at St Teresa's Church next door.  Year Three is a lovely age where the children deepen existing talents, discover new ones and enjoy celebrating each others' achievements and milestones as a class.  The Year Three curriculum at St Teresa's provides an exciting immersion into the classical civilisations of Ancient Greece and Rome, whilst also reviewing the impact the Romans, Celts and Vikings have had on Britain.  Science and geography topics provide for investigation into tectonic activity and geographical aspects of the local area.  Trips vary from year to year, but usually include a mix of visits to the local area, and day trips out to places such as St Albans and The National Trust Ashridge Estate.  To sum up Year Three in the words of one of our current Year Three pupils: "I think Year Three's a wonderful class because there are no boring subjects and we are going to get a pen licence!"
